“The historic Ellison Suites was built in 1913 and the original owners were The Ellisons, followed soon after by comedy duo Laurel & Hardy. Famous guests and residents have included silent screen star Clara Bow. The Ellison was renovated in 1920 and converted to apartments in the 1950’s, and about a decade later was briefly visited by Jim Morrison.” https://theellisonsuites.com/history/
